Dhoruba Bin-Wahad and the 55th Anniversary of the Arrest of the Panther 21

#NY21 #Panther21 #BlackPantherParty SUPPORT FOR DHORUBA! https://gofund.me/08f093e0 From Dhoruba April 2, 2024: "Please broadcast that on this day 55 years ago, the NYPD's Bureau of Special Services (BOSS) swooped down on 21 members of the NY Chapter of the Black Panther Party in a predawn raids across the City. This was the Public beginning of the infamous NY Panther 21 Conspiracy Trial. Only 13 members of the NY Panthers actually stood trial, among whom were Dhoruba Bin-Wahad, Afeni Shakur, Sundiata Acoli,. The Panther 21 Conspiracy case at the time would become the longest and most expensive Conspiracy Trial in the history of the Manhattan District Attorney's Office under the tutelage of the celebrated District Attorney, Frank S. Hogan. It would ultimately mark his most humiliating defeat of his career. The Panther 21 Case as it would come to be known, became a cause celebrè of America's anti-Vietnam war and anti-racist New Left and would highlight the Public Criminalization of Black Radical Movements by the then covert FBI Counter Intelligence Program, COINTELPRO and the Federal Governments Collaboration with local Police Agencies to kill and Imprison Black Revolutionaries. The Indictments of Bobby Seal, Chairman of the BPP, in New Haven Connecticut for the FBI contrived murder of Alex Rackley, and his subsequent trial in Chicago along with White anti-war Radicals known as the "Chicago Seven", the Murder of Chicago Panther Leader Fred Hampton all followed within a year of the NY Panther 21 Conspiracy Indictment. The Killings of Jonathan Jackson at the Marin County Courthouse, the Indictment of Angela Davis and her subsequent capture and trial, the Murder of George Jackson in the California Gulag, all followed in the wake of the NY Panther 21 Conspiracy Trial, and the subsequent acquittal of all its defendants two years later in May of 1971. This legal repression and criminal persecution of the Black and White radicalism of the late sixties gave rise to the Black Liberation Army and the Weatherman Underground of the 70s and 80s as well as the imprisonment of scores of Black, White and Indigenous Radicals like Dhoruba Bin-Wahad, Leonard Peltier, Sundiata Acoli, Sekou Odinga, Mutulu Shakur, and forced into exile Assata Shakur, Michael Cetawayo Tabor, and Puerto Rican Nationalists. From that Day in April to this day there are still Black and Indigenous Political Prisoners in jail: Mumia Abu Jamal, Imam Jamil Al-Amin (H.Rap Brown), Kamau Sididki, Veronza Bowers, Leonard Peltier, and others, the Last of the Generation of the Loud.
